While the toyline for Robots in Disguise is practically over (some toys are still missing at US retail), we still get new licensed products from the show here and there, all across the globe. We recently had Easter Eggs in Italy (Happy Easter by the way!) and now we have DIY model kits in China. Fellow Seibertronian Manuelle Magnus, informed us of these new products which until now were never reported on. These are paper model kits that don't require glue, or paint and which can roll, featuring the alt modes of Optimus Prime, Bumblebee and Strongarm from the Robots in Disguise show. He completed Optimus and sent us an image of what these model kits look like finished.
The description of these kits is: educational, easy to assemble, no scissors or glue required. These three were found at a Chinese Walmart and cost about 30 yuan each, which is around $5 USD.

For something that is made out of paper, that looks pretty damn good!

A little bit of thickened glue placed carefully/strategically and you won't need to worry ;)

Thanks to Seibertronian Sunstar, we have news that Transformers: Robots in Disguise is still putting out some products, and it appears that now we have branched out into Beach Toys! These beach toys, found at a Shoppers Drugmart, have the main Robots in Disguise characters on the main bucket, including Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Sideswipe, Strongarm, and Grimlock. Sunstar notes that the buckets contain A turtle sand mold, a Duck sand mold, a Rake, a shovel, a watering can, a ball and a sieve. She also notes that the balls appear to differ in size between the buckets. They were priced at $8.99.

Is this something your kids would want? Is this something you would want? Check out the images below, and let us know what you think of these beach toys in the comments section below!

If it were cheaper I'd get it to use as a popcorn tub. But then again I don't have much of a use for kiddie shovels, I already have something to scoop the cats box with. :lol:

My husband walked in and saw it sitting on the washer (where I took the picks) and he said wondering what crap I went to buy... then saw the pictures and was OH.

I showed it off to my coworker and her response was "Don't tell me you bought that because it was transformers..."

I reply: That's exactly why I bought it!

Good news folks, Amazon finally has Twinferno in stock and it's a steal at $9.99 shipped. That's one month of the WWE network! Anyway here's a review since it's been a LONG time since the figure was first shown off.

I know no one really cares about these but I found them at my local Dollar Tree for 1$. I decided to buy one to see who I'd get.

I was happy Because I like Fixit but, these are plastic with stickers on them. When I was a kid they had metal ones with cartoons stamped onto them. The chain they come with isn't metal either, the clasp is metal though. One of the small balls fell off the first time I tried to clasp it. It's cheap entertainment though so if you are looking for quality look elsewhere!

I'll probably devise a way to attach them to my backpack to use as a keychain or something.

I got him and Saberclaw from Canada from Will 2 weeks ago, they are pretty fun! Shame these guys have been so hard to find, I think the final 2 are the best in terms of names and enjoyability
